It’s a fast promotion. One of the coolest parts of being a WWE fan is getting to see who is called up to the main roster from NXT. There are all kinds of talented people down in the developmental territory and WWE has been calling up a lot of people over the last few months. As it turns out, we already have a new name who is coming up, even if it might not be a permanent one.
As announced on WWE.com, NXT’s new talent Isaiah Scott will be appearing on next week’s 205 Live in a non-title match against Cruiserweight Champion Drew Gulak. Scott, better known as Shane Strickland, has only appeared once in NXT, losing in the first round of the Breakout Tournament. At the moment, there is no reason to believe that this is going to be more than a one off appearance.
It’s not like he has much footage. Check out Scott’s NXT debut:
Opinion: This is something that could be rather interesting as Scott is one of the most naturally talented people currently in NXT. While I can’t imagine that he’s going to be called up anytime soon, it’s cool to see him show up and see what he can do. This is something that WWE has done before, though that doesn’t make it any less fun. Hopefully the match is as good as it could be.
